A legal education is a significant investment. Like all investments, it is wise to seek guidance and make prudent financial decisions. At Toledo Law, we take pride in providing an excellent legal education at an affordable cost. Our tuition and fees are competitive with those of Ohio’s other publicly-supported law schools, and among the lowest in the nation.
2012-2013 Tuition & Fee Schedule
The University of Toledo College of Law awards numerous scholarships to qualified applicants. In 2012, over half of our entering class received a scholarship award. Entering students are considered for scholarships based on their application for admission. Scholarships are awarded on a rolling basis throughout the admissions cycle as funds become available. Scholarship notifications are mailed via US Mail to recipients. Information on our Conditional Scholarship Retention Rates can be found here.
Dean’s Scholarship: Toledo Law awards generous merit-based scholarships to entering students. These awards may provide full or partial tuition and fees for up to three years, provided that a stipulated grade point average is maintained each academic year.
Diversity Scholarship: Toledo Law offers Law Education Opportunity Grants (LEOG) for qualified applicants. Candidates from groups traditionally underrepresented in the legal profession are favored for such awards. These awards may offer up to full tuition and fees for up to three years, provided that a stipulated grade point average is maintained each academic year. A book stipend may also be awarded as part of this scholarship.
Michigan Six Scholarship: Toledo Law will provide a scholarship to cover the out-of-state surcharge for qualified residents of the following six Michigan counties: Hillsdale, Lenawee, Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw, and Wayne. This scholarship is automatically renewed each semester of law school.
Monroe County, Michigan Reciprocity: Residents of Monroe County, MI are treated as Ohio residents for tuition purposes.
Out-of-State Scholarship: Toledo Law will provide a scholarship for the 2013-2014 academic year to cover the out-of-state surcharge to non-Ohio residents who do not otherwise qualify for in-state tuition rates. Nonresident students may petition to be reclassified as an Ohio resident after residing in Ohio for twelve months. Applicants are encouraged to review the Ohio Board of Regents residency criteria which will further explain residency guidelines.
Denton Leadership Stipend: Toledo Law offers a Denton Leadership and Service Stipend to select applicants who have shown extraordinary leadership and promise. This first-year award is intended to provide funding for miscellaneous law school related expenses.
Through the generosity of alumni and benefactors, there are numerous upper-level scholarships that students may apply for during law school. Students can consult with the Law Financial Aid Office to identify these funding opportunities.
Top Ten Scholarship: Students who entered Toledo Law without a Dean’s or Diversity scholarship, and who complete the first-year curriculum and are ranked in the Top 10 of their class will receive a scholarship that covers in-state tuition for their second year of law school.
The Toledo Law Financial Aid Office is committed to assisting students in meeting their tuition and living expenses. Federal student loans are available to law students who meet federal and University eligibility requirements. Applicants who wish to be considered for financial aid should file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible after January 1.
Financial Aid assistance and counseling is available at the Law Financial Aid Office, Room 2000S of the Law Center. Please contact our Assistant Director of Financial Aid, Robin Kaffine, at (419) 530-7929 or email@example.com for questions or to schedule an appointment.
